1986-10-04 [[Bernardo Pinango]] w rsc 10 (15) [[Ciro De Leva]], Sports Palace, Turin, Italy - WBA. Referee: Stan Christodoulou. Both men started slowly, but once Pinango (117¾) went to work in the third round it was clear that De Leva (117¾) was going to have his hands full. And so it proved. Using his advantages in height and reach, the champion started to hand out a boxing lesson before upping the pace and hammering De Leva mercilessly from the fifth onwards, closing his right eye and forcing the referee to eventually come to his rescue with just one second of the tenth round remaining.
